Tampa detectives to revisit home today in missing woman case
By REBECCA CATALANELLO, Times Staff Writer

Temple Terrace police reported no developments Tuesday in the search for missing woman Sandra Prince beneath a South Tampa home.
Temple Terrace spokesman Michael Dunn said detectives plan to return to 3908 W Vasconia St. today, marking day six of the most current search at the home.
Detectives secured a warrant to search the residence last week, three months after police say soil samples obtained during another dig indicated Prince's body might be there.
Dunn said contractors were at the site part of the day Tuesday, but he wouldn't comment on what they were doing. He declined to say whether detectives have found any evidence of the missing social worker.
Prince was reported missing from her Temple Terrace home by neighbors on Jan. 3, 2006. She was 59 at the time, and co-founder of the Agency for Community Treatment Services.
Police have named Tampa contractor Earl C. Pippin III a "person of interest" in the case, saying the two were romantically involved and that he was the sole beneficiary of her estate.
Public records show Pippin built the Vasconia Street house and poured a concrete slab at the site about the time Prince vanished. Pippin's attorney, Paul Sisco, maintains police have unfairly targeted Pippin and there is no evidence linking his client to Prince's disappearance.
